Cristiano Ronaldo wants Real Madrid fans to stop booing

Cristiano Ronaldo wants Real Madrid fans to stop booing

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to become the first man to reach 100 Champions League goals as Real Madrid overcame 10-man Bayern Munich 4-2 after extra time in Tuesday's quarter-final second leg to advance 6-3 on aggregate.

Two of Cristiano Ronaldo's three goals looked off side, adding to Bayern's anger with the referee's decisions as they were eliminated by a Spanish team for the fourth straight time in the competition. When two big teams meet like this in the Champions League, such a robbery can not happen.

Bayern and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal was also given his marching orders in the second half for two bookable offences - the second one was quite clearly a clean tackle on Real's Marco Asensio.

Bayern pushed hard for a second goal which would have put them into the last four, but Ronaldo leveled the score with 15 minutes remaining.

To make matters worse, there was a hint of an offside about that goal as well.

Bayern then conceded three in extra-time, two of which were scored by Ronaldo as he completed his hat-trick, but both should arguably have been ruled out for offside, per The Telegraph. He came into the series against Bayern in a scoring drought of almost seven months in the European tournament, and had scored only once in his last five Madrid games in all competitions.

Barcelona will be on against Juventus on Wednesday in their Champions League quarterfinal second leg aiming to overturn a 3-0 deficit.

Casemiro was harshly penalized when Arjen Robben tumbled inside the Madrid box, whilst Lewandowski was also offside in the build-up to Ramos's own goal. "I always give my best, I work and I help Real Madrid". "There are decisions that have penalized us a lot".

"Bayern feel the behaviour of the Spanish police is utterly out of place and excessive, and have lodged a complaint with UEFA about the actions of the Spanish police".

Ulreich has been rumored to be looking for a more regular starting opportunity elsewhere, so this could be his chance to showcase what he's able to do.

"The referee probably wasn't up to the task", said the Italian, a former Real boss. "There are few players who can do what Ronaldo has done and we all know that".
